Editorial Test Drive Review of Chevrolet Beat

The Chevrolet Beat continues to look contemporary with its futuristic design cues. The first thing that commands your attention is the oversized front and the chrome adorned chunky grille flaunting the Chevrolet bow-tie. This gives the Beat a very dynamic stance. The high waistline and sloped roof with rails on top make the car look interesting from the side as well.

In order to give the car a two-door appearance, the rear door handles have been disguised in the C pillars. These look good but do eat up the rear window glass and can seem claustrophobic to some. The interiors have a dash with its twin console design and piano black trim looks fantastic. The superbike inspired instrument console looks great, however, a digital speedo and analogue tacho would have worked better than the existing analogue speedo and digital tachometer. The dash is fit for a higher segment car and the interiors are quite appealing. The Beat has contoured seats which offer good side support, but overall the seat is not deep enough to offer good lumbar support and the low seating position can be a problem during long drives.The Beat is available with two engines, a petrol and a diesel.

The petrol has an mileage of 14-15 km/l in city but the one that takes the cake is the Beat diesel which has a fantastic mileage of 25 km/l which is great and reduces cost by a long shot. That means the price difference between the petrol and diesel is nullified by the economy of the diesel. The diesel is also reasonably quick though in highway does feel strained but overall the diesel is our choice due to its economy, the petrol is good but loses out on economy.The Chevrolet Beat has the best ride quality, not just among the three cars, but in the entire segment. The supreme ride quality also gives the car an advantage in the overall handling. The Beat feels sharp around corners and is a delight to manoeuvre through congested city traffic. The front suspension is of McPherson strut and the rear suspension is of compound link type.Prices for the Beat start at 3.8 lakhs to 5.7 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi. It is also available in LPG plus usual petrol and diesel. Though it has been available for a long time it still looks good and makes a great buy especially the diesel.

Chevrolet Beat Exteriors

 The Beat has been designed in South Korea and the end product is an absolute eye grabber. The first thing that commands your attention is the oversized front and the chunky grille flaunting the Chevrolet bow-tie. This gives the Beat a very dynamic stance. The high waistline and sloped roof with rails on top make the car look interesting from the side as well. To give a two-door appearance, the rear door handles have been disguised in the C pillars. These look good but do eat up the rear window glass and can seem claustrophobic to some.


What we like

 Youthful styling


What we don't like

Design may not appeal to everyone's taste

Chevrolet Beat Comfort & Suspension

The Chevrolet Beat has the best ride quality, not just among the three cars, but in the entire segment. The supreme ride quality also gives the car an advantage in the overall handling. The Beat feels sharp around corners and is a delight to manoeuvre through congested city traffic. The front suspension is of Mc Pherson strut and the rear suspension is of compound link type.


What we like

The Chevrolet Beat has the best ride quality in it's class


What we don't like

Rear seat is claustrophobic



Chevrolet Beat Engine & Performance

 Chevrolet Beat is available with two engine options, the petrol is a 1.2L with 1197 cc. The 80 bhp engine feels rev happy and dashes to 100km/h in 14.2 seconds. The Chevrolet engine has a noisy hum which gives a sporty feel, but can be irritating for non-enthusiasts. To squeeze performance out of the Beat, the engine needs to be pushed to high rpms (4000 to 4500). The diesel engine is a 1 litre Smartech 3-cylinder engine which makes 57 bhp and torque of 150 Nm.Granted 58 bhp is not powerful enough but with the clever gearing and less weight the Beat just flies through traffic. This is where the Beat Diesel really shines- in the city.


Turbo-lag is kept as low as possible and again thanks to the excellent gearing by GM, it is very easy to drive and it goes quickly. The steering is light and easy to operate and so is the clutch. The gearbox is nice to use but the throws are long. One thing you got to know that it is important to drive it in the right gear and revving it is pointless. In the highways the car runs out of breath quite easily but first and foremost it is a city car and for that it does its job brilliantly. That said it does hit the 150km/h mark as well!


What we like

The petrol is fun to drive and has sporty dynamics


What we don't like

 Diesel engine feels strained at high speeds


Chevrolet Beat Handling Braking & Safety

When it comes to handling the Beat is fun to drive and has good high speed stability. The direct steering helps in this matter and when you drive it fast it obeys you as well. The handling is more fun than other rivals and body control is good. The Beat has ABS which offers good braking performance plus safety wise it has dual SRS airbag and also features like child locks.

 


What we like

Good road manners


What we don't like

 High speed stability could have been better



Chevrolet Beat Mileage and Running Costs

The Beat is available with two engines, a petrol and a diesel. The petrol has an mileage of 14-15 kmpl in city but the one that takes the cake is the Beat diesel which has a fantastic mileage of 25 kmpl which is great and reduces cost by a long shot. That means the price difference between the petrol and diesel is nullified by the economy of the diesel.

sajal goyal | Posted on Feb,27,2014 at 00:25 AM
not at all good for man . Must say it's quite girlish type also offers very little front view as the driving seat is
quite dugged in that driving it is an approximation Not at all fit for people above 5'6" Reply to this post

Chevrolet Spark. Actually a good car. But every now and then some problem somewhere. Milage is also very less about 14.5
KMPL in tamilnadu. That makes it unaffordable. Reply to this post
